Exchange on removal of former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. Sec. Pompeo: "It's all silliness..." Sen. @timkaine : You might think this is silly, you might think these questions are silly...I don't think it's silly to Marie Yovanovitch."

Asked by @timkaine  if Marie Yovanovitch was an effective ambassador to Ukraine and a valuable part of the State Dept, @SecPompeo  refuses to answer and speak on personnel issues. Exchange continued and was heated.

Top aide to Sec of State Pompeo describes 2019 contacts between Pompeo & Pres Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani—which ultimately led to politically-motivated ouster of US ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch—as "deeply disturbing,” @politico  rpts:

Ukraine has already been without an official U.S. ambassador since Marie L. Yovanovitch got fired by U. S. President Donald J. Trump and returned home to America in May 2019.

Did former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch lie to Congress? "Just because you're a lifer in Washington DC doesn't mean you shouldn't be questioned," @JenKernsUSA  tells Newsmax TV. "This is part of the... swamp that most Americans despise."

Newly-released State Department documents suggest that former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch knew more about Burisma, the corrupt company tied to Hunter Biden, than she told the House impeachment inquiry last year.

Trump intends to nominate retired Lieutenant General Keith Dayton as ambassador to Ukraine, after ousting Marie Yovanovitch from the role.

If you were as moved as I was by Ambassador Yovanovitch‘ s testimony today , retweet #BravoMasha  !

Mike Pompeo — who refused a House subpoena — would be a top witness for Democrats in the impeachment trial. He is not set to testify, but he spoke to @NPRKelly . She asked the secretary of state if he would defend Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch:

Ambassador Yovanovitch's removal from Ukraine is the beginning of the story, A story about the President’s efforts to coerce, condition, or bribe Ukraine for political investigations. If you have any doubt that these are the facts, do what Trump says: Read the transcript.

Feeling a little down today about the state of our republic? Here's a way to cheer you up! Nominate Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch for the JFK Profile in Courage Award. Deadline is Feb 15.

Let’s judge Trump’s conduct by his words and deeds: Recalls Ambassador Yovanovitch, after she’s falsely smeared. PraisesUkraine’s corrupt former prosecutor. Asks Ukraine to investigate his rival. Holds up aid until it does. That’s not anti-corruption. Just corruption.

Right now, President Trump is watching our hearing and tweeting baseless attacks against Ambassador Yovanovitch. This is witness intimidation in real time. And we won’t stand for it.

My Republican colleagues would have the American public believe that Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch's testimony is not relevant to our impeachment inquiry. One person who thought she was relevant? President Trump, who brought her up in his July 25 call with Zelensky.

Taylor and Kent are dedicated public servants. The story they shared is deeply troubling—for our national security, and for the very health of our democracy. On Friday, we'll hear from Ambassador Yovanovitch. The American public deserves the full picture of Trump's misconduct.

Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch is a stalwart anti-corruption advocate, dedicated to the rule of law. That made her an obstacle. So Trump and his allies pushed her out, and set the stage for what was to come.

I commend Ambassador Yovanovitch for her decades of service to our country, at posts across the world. She upheld the rule of law in Ukraine, and did so again at home by testifying today. We hope and expect other public servants to do the same.
